Stop those annoying PCMCIA messages

This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you’re working with a PCMCIA modem or network card under R4.5, you’ve seen the alert boxes that pop up telling you that “Device X is online.” If you get tired of seeing these, try this:

1) Make a backup copy of /etc/pcmcia/net and/or /etc/pcmcia/serial

2) Edit the files and place a # in front of each line containing “alert.”

Note: only do this once you’re sure your card(s) are fully functional.
